The Beast of the City

Synopsis

Capt. Jim Fitzpatrick (Walter Huston) is a principled family man, but when it comes to his job with the police in Prohibition-era Chicago, he's a vicious and violent crusader for justice. When mob boss Sam Belmonte (Jean Hersholt) beats the rap for a gangland hit, Jim risks his life and career to prove his hunch. He recruits his vice cop brother, Ed (Wallace Ford), for the case, but Ed gets mixed up in a secret romance with mob girl Daisy Stevens (Jean Harlow), leading to an epic showdown.
